Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a good week. I've had an awful few days so this post nearly didn't make it! Spent 7 hours in A&E with my Mum on Friday night eventually getting home at 2.30am! Doctors think she either had a bad reaction to her chemo infusion on Friday and/or she had a mini stroke. She's had to come off all her chemo til she sees the oncologist on Monday and we are awaiting an appointment at the mini stroke clinic. I've had to watch her like a hawk over the last few days. I've not really slept that well and am exhausted.
Anyhow, enough of my doom and gloom... and onto some cards.....
Image is of course Magnolia- such a cutie. I coloured her with lyra and watercolour pencils and added copious amounts of Stickles!! Papers are by Papermania. I added some lovely gold embossed swirls around the edges of the card (I was going to use a Sizzix swirl, then realised I couldn't!!) I made the flowers using my Die-namics die.
Hope you will join us in the challenge this week, it's such a fun one and have a look at the rest of the DT's work- it's AMAZING this week!! Such a group of talented ladies and we've all got a different style which makes it so much more interesting to look at!!
Don't forget you can buy your Magnolias and lots of other crafting goodness from The Craft Den!

I made this for the challenge over at Stamping Bella which this week is a sketch. I used Barbella for a friend's birthday card. She's a gym bunny so I thought it was rather apt. I coloured with watercolour and lyra pencils. As you can see the sketch was quite simple so I kept the image quite simple by just adding some coloured pearls. Sentiment is Papertrey Ink and Paper by My Mind's Eye.
